FC (Fuel Cell), DER (Distributed Energy Resources),Energy Network and Load Leveling


We developed a simulator of the hydrogen network system using plural fuel cells. We call it Energy Network Simulator. Some control methods of fuel cells and reformers were implemented on this simulator, and comparison of the energy-saving effect can be examinable by combining control methods. As a result, it became clear that load distribution makes Energy system work efficiently rather than working by one equipment to one load. We have some plans to improve, expand the functions of simulator based on the analysis of the experiment results and prove the control methods verified by simulator in the experiments.
